Made it last month with meter. Big thing I've noticed - if you are throwing a low breaking ball, don't miss the meter early. If you are throwing a high fastball, don't time the meter late. Good luck.
I would go Buxton over them and spend Stubbs elsewhere
Would not recommend him unless you are a fan. Even on HOF he isn't too hard to pick up. Lodolo is free if you need a lefty starter.
Marginally better than trout, but I didnt face enough lefties to justify keeping him for his cost. Maybe if 4th inning releases a good lefty starter his relevance will rise.
Absolutely. Guessing it's due to the patch and everyone getting used to the standard pitchers every game. My era this season went from low 3s to the 5s, but it feels worse than that.
One game I can't get an out to save my life. Other games my opponents experience the pain. RS is certainly frustrating when you can't get a semi close (+-4 runs) game into the 9th.
Lesson learned: skip the first week of RS. Unless you are a beast.
Graterol or the reds FS if you want another lefty
Braves vs pirates 19 innings. As a pirates fan, watching them get screwed by a call at home plate was disappointing to say the least. Was a good time otherwise.
It's the first inning conquest, not Willie Mays one. Considerably shorter for 30.
